  • A Tale Dark and Grimm

    Adam Gidwitz makes a sparkling debut with a work that children are sure to request again and again. Not content within the confines of their own tale, Hansel and Gretel skip out on their story and jump into eight other classic Grimm fairy tales. But all is not sugarplums and candy houses. Danger lies ahead, and Hansel and Gretel have much to learn about avoiding witches’ ovens and making sure “The End” isn’t their end.

    Nothing really matters says: "My kids LOVED this. I was addicted as well."
    "Fun and entertaining"

    Enjoyed the fairytale being embelished to tell more about Hansel and Gretel. Good voice talent, which I think can make or break an audio book!

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    Michael G. Kurilla says: "Macgyver on Mars"

    I really enjoyed this story and found myself listening every chance I got. I thought the character was very likeable and I rooted for his survival. the narrator did a great job, I feel that can make all the difference in whether I enjoy an audio book or not. I can't wait for the movie!
